Leadership in the 21st-Century: Modern Decision-Making for Complex Problems

What is the key to leadership in today’s business environment? Tremendous social and technological forces are radically reshaping the world—so much so that the way we typically tackle problems has become outdated. In order to meet the complexity of the challenges they face, leaders in every sector need to completely rethink their role, particularly in their management of increasingly age-diverse employees. But where to start? In this 60 minute webinar, Ted Cadsby discusses how 21st century challenges are qualitatively different from the ones that previous generations faced, and how our traditional approach to problem solving is poorly suited to the complexity of modern business. Ted explains the significant implications of this knowledge gap for leaders and outlines the unintuitive but powerful ways that leaders can harness the hidden power of their teams. First and foremost, he reveals the key to leadership in today’s world—a feature that is rarely talked about, but is increasingly crucial.

Engaging Employees Through Career Growth and Development

When it comes to professional development, what younger workers expect from their employers can be challenging to deliver. While career growth and development is a known driver of employee engagement, employers in most sectors of the economy are not growing fast enough to provide the rapid promotions that employees would like. Expectations are increasing with regards to professional development, but loyalty to organizations is decreasing even quicker, creating a dilemma for the employer. How can organizations manage this balancing act and leverage growth and development to help foster an engaging workplace culture?

Alcohol and Drug Abuse in the Workplace

Substance misuse and abuse in the workplace has been linked to workplace absenteeism, productivity loss, on-the-job accidents and injuries, sick leave and health benefits claims, workplace violence and harassment, increased legal exposure, and more. Yet despite these serious concerns, substance misuse in the workplace is often misunderstood, leading to poor management and the potential for further exacerbation of both personal and organizational issues. The Conference Board has undertaken a research study to learn more about this issue. During the course of the study, our researchers examined: the perceived impact of substance use on a number of key workplace indicators (e.g., job performance, customer satisfaction, turnover, legal liabilities, accidents and injuries, sick leave and benefits costs, grievances and arbitrations, and violence, bullying and harassment); the extent to which employers understand substance abuse and see it as important workplace issue; and the extent to which employers have taken steps within their organization (e.g., policies, practices) to mitigate its impact.

How to adopt and maintain physical activity in the workplace - Fit at Work

Despite overwhelming evidence of the benefits of regular physical activity, participation remains very low among Canadian adults. To combat this sedentary lifestyle, many organizations across the country are promoting their own workplace activity programs, and unfortunately, have had mixed results. So can these programs work?

Join Dr. Ryan Rhodes from the University of Victoria’s Behavioural Medicine Lab as he overviews the benefits of regular physical activity from personal health, workplace wellness, and economic perspectives, and what organizations can do to promote these programs among their employees.

So how can organizations promote physical activity and reduce sedentary behaviours in their workplaces?

The Millennial Labour Movement: Younger Workers and Union Renewal

Unionization rates have stagnated or are falling across the country, especially in the private sector. The future viability and relevance of Canadian labour unions depends, at least in part, on the engagement of the emerging millennial workforce. The challenge for unions—as it is for employers—is to better understand the needs and interests that are of specific concern to younger workers, and those that may differ from other segments of the workforce. But will it be enough? In this new environment, how can union leaders juggle increasing membership in Millennials while also defending the value of unions to workers and demonstrating strength and solidarity to employers?
